Mariah Carey x MAC

My g/f Rima is my partner in crime when it comes to buying indecent amounts of beauty products. 3 days ago she calls me up to tell me she pre-sold us both the most of the MAC Mariah Carey Collection.

Whisper of Guilt

I normally wouldn’t even go close to the MAC Holiday Collections…but a few days ago a really sweet follower of mine messaged me that Whisper of Guilt was going to be apart of the collection this year. So I made an expcetion and last week I stopped by and pre-sold that 1 item. Pick up was yesterday but I was too busy to go get it. Just picked it up today:

Jane Iredale Vs. MAC

I don’t know if you guys remember but a while back I had purchased and posted the #135 brush from MAC cosmetics. I had bought the brush because 2 of my favorite Youtubers were raving about it. Anyway, I never really loved it the way they did. BUT recently I did find a brush very similar to the MAC 135 brush but one that I actually love WAY MORE. It is the Chisel Powder brush by Jane Iredale:
image
Here they are side by side. You can see the shape is identical, but the difference is the density of the bristles, the size, and how much more tightly they are packed in the Jane Iredale Chisel Powder brush. I use this brush to apply bronzer.
image
I like the Jane Iredale Chisel brush more because I have more control over the application of the product. Whereas with the MAC 135 brush I would not get a precise application, and the product would just go everywhere. If I am doing an everyday look and all I want is some color on my face, kinda all over, I don’t mind using the MAC 135, but if I am spending my time on my make-up (to go out) and I want a perfect and precise application of bronzer then I definitely will go with the Jane Chisel Powder Brush.

    I wonder what you would think about elf brushes…not sure if you’ve tried them or not but the brushes with the black handles are really good imo especially for the price. Would love your feedback on them

      You know I have always seen them at Ulta but never got one. It never appealed to me. Maybe I should look into them. Is there a specific one that you like?

        The complexion brush (which is a bit similar to the brushes in your post) and the blush brush (I use for setting under eyes) are my favs

Hey Guys,

I purchased this product about 1 month ago and have been using it everyday in my skin care regimen. Right after I’m done washing my face, I spray this all over my face, then I start applying the rest of my products. So far I am loving it.
image
Beauty is Life is one of my all time favorite make-up lines. I especially love their lip stick and lip glosses. I stopped by Barney’s the other day and picked up a new liner, lip stick (which when I came home I realized I already had),and restocked on a old favorite lip gloss. Here is the liner. I have not used it yet, but it is a really nice nude.
image
This is the gloss I restocked up on. A really nice pale pinky nude. The consistency is kind of thick and not sticky, which are my FAVORITE types of glosses.
image
image
Truth be told I only got this lip pencil only cause I saw it on Jacklyn Hills youtube channel. I am almost positive I won’t be using it.
image
The swatch is the one on the bottom, a shade darker and browner than the Beauty is Life.
image
Okay so after ALLLLLL the concealers I have used in the past few years. I have to admit that NOTHING compares to this baby! MAC Prolonger Concealer NW20.
image
It never creases, it never becomes caked. It’s just perfect.
image
So, I got this brush just for aesthetic purposes. I really liked the color, and that Zac Posen was behind it. Plus it wouldn’t hurt to have one more bronzing/contour brush.
image
image
I think this is my 6th lip slip. Either I lose them, my daughter takes them, or…I dunno. But I love it! Best lip balm EVER!

Shadester

Love using this color to warm up my face before I go in for a contour. It’s not easy to find the right color for this. Some are too orange some are too gray but this one is the perfect tone for my skin.

    Do you mind explaining how you use this?

      Yes I take a large fluffy powder brush and go around the rim of my face in circular motion. Just to give my face a nice tanned appearance before I go in with a sharp contour.

#fail

I was done with my 2nd Urban Decay Naked Concealer so I decided to pick up my new on in a shade darker than the one I normally use which is light neutral. I didn’t like the look at all. I wanted to stop doing the heavy highlighted look under my eyes, but I realized that using a lighter concealer just looks better. Matter of fact as much I love this concealer I decided I need to go back to MAC Pro Longwear in NW20. I just finished using my second Urban Decay, and I dont know about you guys, but when my skin gets used to a product, it stops looking amazing after a while.

    Hi – do you normally get blow dries everyday ? I usually blow dry my hair and the next day it looks ugly! 🙁 Do you recommend anything to make it last longer?

    1. anyut says:

      Hi. I definitely do not get a daily blow dry. Washing and blow drying your everyday would be like torture for the quality of ur hair. I wash my hair every 2-3 days. At least 2x a week I’ll blow dry and the rest of the time I’ll leave it to air dry and have fun with texturing products. My hair doesn’t look good on a second day of blow out so I normally tie it. I think products that claim to make it make ur blow out last longer are bull shit. I know some people use a dry shampoo on the second day to keep their hair looking fresh, but that doesn’t work for me. Sorry that was not much help.

Emphasize

By far one of the BEST!!!! under eye setting powders I have used. It’s no wonder it is always out of stock in the store. I have been using this powder by MAC to set my concealer for the past few weeks. Not only does it give an amazing highlight, it has the most perfect white tint that’s not too white but not dull, the shine is just right, and best of all…it has a velvet finish. I kid you not…I’m obsessed!
